  1. Hey Doc

    I Have been listening to the podcast since the humble beginnings and have put in for some ideas in the past. I was wondering if you are doing anything to tie in with the Eclipse on Aug 21? Seems there are a lot of songs about the moon and the sun : )

    Thanks for all the hard work you do!

  3. Hey Doc. Found you from Perry Bax and his podcast. Finally got to check it out and I am now on the dark side of heaven. Sent a donation and bought some swag for me and the Mrs. Wish I could send more right now but my meds are costly. Thanks for all you do.

  4. I just found your show, and I am loving it. I have been into Floyd since back in High School when I get introduced to The Wall. That was during the interregnum, and I graduated a few months before A Momentary Lapse of Reason came out.

    I really appreciate the About Face concert tracks from that one episode. I had a videotape of the concert on VHS, along with the behind-the-scenes documentary (of which I remember two things distinctly, one was Gilmour’s despondence at the tour’s success, which he felt was a lack of name recognition problem (aka, “which one’s Pink?), and his choice not to advertise his association with Pink Floyd much in marketing, and the strange reason Mick Ralphs was on the tour (they were neighbors, used to talk while gardening and Ralphs asked to go on tour because he was bored as Bad Company was on hold).

    However, I really like About Face (except Blue Light). It really points to the future of Momentary Lapse. Too bad not many remember it.

    Keep it up!

I started playing drums at the age of 4 and now I’m branching out into other instruments such as guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals. I’ve been teaching myself to mix, record and film music since I was 10 years old and this is my passion.

    I’ve been covering Floyd on YouTube for a while now and I’ve got a great reputation for doing Floyd covers. I thought you might be interested in checking out my work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldB6JDh4CNw

  6. Hey man how are ya?

    I understand you are a PINK FLOYD expert?

    I owned an indie record store for about a decade from 1988 on and bought product direct from the labels. I have an item that is not in front of me at the moment so I can’t give specifics…..It’s been in a bank vault since 1990.

    I purchased an import CD SINGLE called ON THE TURNING AWAY.

    It’s in a thin CD SINGLE type case…..it has a catalog #, etc.

    Anyway……..it’s supposed to have 3 tracks if my memory serves me correctly…………….

    It actually has 12 tracks of BEATLES SONGS…

    The CD has no info about the BEATLES.

    Have you ever heard of this piece?

    Thanks

  7. Hello, dear Doctor. I, Igor Kurian, Vilnius, Lithuania, more than thirty years I’m a fan of the Pink Floyd. I even since ’98 working on a book about their music. Thank you very much for your great show with a lot of cool stuff! Forgive me if I’m interrupting you. For my book I would like to know what the interview taken for the first words to your show “Go with the Flow”? I need to find out for analysis “Louder Than Words”. It seems to me that this is the voices of Richard and David. Please forgive me for my clumsy English. My native language is Russian)))

    • Hello Igor. Thanks for the kind words. The “gotta go with the flow” was spoken by Polly. Its taken from the extra features on David’d “Remember That Night”. DVD while they were in Venice when they came upon the glass harmonica player on the street.

      • Thank you very much for the information, Doc! I’m surprised)) I thought that in the final of “Louder Than Words” Richard’s voice used. And I think that there were about these words: “Get together and play”))) Polly’s voice was very rude. It even seems that on the video was added the voice of another person. Mystic…

  8. Yo doc! So …what’s the word in your opinion/s for “the endless river” assemble-+20 yr-age/s, eh”?” I suppose that buddy will be up by midnight on UT … and actually I am MOST interested in the music (esp = Ricks pre/post contribution/s!) …preferably, complete audio in finite but, with respect to PF intended “flow”; natch/word! Sooooo …what’s your take for expertly acquired Pink Floyd-ian advice, bro”?” Peace/the z >>>

      • Upon first listen held back the urges to listen to snippets. First impression very much enjoyed the ambient sounds with a nice flow from track to track. The soundtrack for the end. Next it will be to take in the BLU-Ray 🙂

      • I saved it for this special “late night/early morning” undisturbed listen …on my 3rd run, eh! I enjoy the encompassing expansiveness as it is quite accommodating to my scribblings of words, but I still would like to have heard some RW vocals/lyrics to accept it as a fitting “swan song” …IF this is truly to be last of that fine floynian pink wine, eh!?! Z (the bopper!) – Peace 😉 >>>

    • just found this site. Man, that’s brilliant, thx a lot for the hard work. Keep running it, you made my day!!!

  9. Hey Doc, i just got turned onto your podcast through another really good podcast (BRYHNH). I saw someone asked how to download thru itunes, and your answer worked great for the episodes from March 26 thru the present. Any ideas on how to download into itunes the older episodes? Thanks for all the great Floyd music.

    Steve

  10. Doc,

    Is it possible to download (legally) the podcasts to iTunes on my iMac so I can refer to them and play them any time day or night?

    Thanks for the great show and all the knowledge about Pink Floyd,
    Bob

    • Hello Bob,
      Yes, you can (legally) listen via iTunes. If you come across a podcast like mine on the Internet that you can’t find in the iTunes Store, you can still subscribe to it.
      In iTunes, from the File menu, choose Subscribe to Podcast and enter the podcast feed URL.

      floydpodcast.com/?feed=podcast

      iTunes subscribes you to the podcast and begins downloading immediately. Hope this helps!

      • Thanks Doc…it worked fine!

        Also…..years back I downloaded several shows (100 – 130) on my old Windows machine to a thumb drive….but when I tried to play them on the new iMac they don’t play….but they still do play on the old windows machine.

        Is there any way to transfer them to the new iMac or CD so I can play them in the truck?

        Thanks,
        Bob

        P.S. I was an early donator back on the old site.

        • Hey Bob. Thanks for your support in the past and I hope you like the new site. If you’re unaware, the donation button is on the “about” link at the top of the page.

          About the thumb drive. Are they mp3? What kind of fine are they?

          Doc

  11. Hello, Doc…
    Seems we share a common moniker…”Doc”
    I just wanted to say THANK YOU…!!!
    I consider your shows and available downloads, to be the very first place to search to acquire live and more obscure recordings of PF…
    Being a musician and collector of music, for most of my 56 years(ouch!), I would like to think I am qualified to make such a statement…I recommend you to all of my friends and associates…KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK…WELL DONE…!!!
    Mark “Doc” Mackey

  12. Doc, Welcome back. I want to donate but am paranoid about using credit cards without paypal or a secure payment method. Maybe send to you directly? Anyway, I tried the RSS podcast link. It worked OK back to the may show, 184 or 185. But no archived beyond this date. I was able to modify a past show url, 10/31/10 by using your new http address from the 2010 October download URL. Any way to fix this????
    Great to have you back. I am going to see Brit Floyd in Toledo in March. Close to the real thing but not the real thing. Ola Bienkowska does a awesome job on Great Gig in the Sky. I pray she shows in Toledo. Talk to ya later. Steve

    • Thanks Steven. My donation provider, Clover Donations, is very secure. Theres no way around the limit RSS feed will allow. you’ll have to manually download the other shows and add them to your iTunes.

  13. Good news, the Doc is back! Thanx for the early Christmas present. Like your new site, and I’m looking forward to lots of great podcasts. Keep up the good work.

  14. Doc
    So good to have you and these great podcasts back. 35 years a fan of Pink Floyd but still you dig up material I have either never heard or long forgot about. Received my indoctrination waking up in the middle of the night to hearing Us and Them on the radio in the middle of the night. Have been hooked ever since.
    Keep up the fantastic work!
    Always a loyal fan.

    Tom a.k.a Wyomarus

  15. Doc,
    I am so thankful that I am now able to finally listen to your podcasts. I am hearing stuff that I’ve forgotten about, haven’t heard in years, or have never heard before. And I thought my personal archive ran pretty deep. I love the fact that you are willing to dig into the far obscure corners of the band’s body of work and surprise the hell out of me. Thank you for doing such a great job!
    Take care,
    Cobray/Bob
